There is nothing quite like waking to the sound of a thundering V-Twin coming up your street. You see my good friend Spydie was on the way down today so that we could get a little scooter time in together. For one reason or another we hadn’t been able to take a ride.

Now I’m not exactly known for having the cleanest bike around although I have been doing better lately. How great of a friend is it that will rinse your bike off for you after you wash her so that you can get ready to ride? Spydie is a class act all the way.

It was determined that we’d ride up to Port Royal State Park for the start of our ride. Port Royal is located northeast of Clarksville, Tennessee near the town of Adams. Perhaps you’ve heard of Adams before. It is well known for a witch that haunted the Bell family many years ago. Even “Old Hickory” himself had a run in with her. For those of you who don’t know who that is……..Andrew Jackson….president of the United States.

This part of the country is big time farm land. We even passed an Amish couple in their buggy. Soon we had reached Russellville, Kentucky and took a break. I really wanted to ride up to Owensboro with Spydie but I knew that time wasn’t gonna allow it today. Soon I was headed south down US 431 through some great wheat fields and old barns. I just had to grab a photograph or two so y’all could enjoy the view as well.

All in all this wasn’t any monumental ride but an extremely enjoyable one nonetheless. By the time I made my way back into the garage I had clicked off 247 miles for the day. These little day jaunts always seem to be filled with tons of great memories.

  1. You’ve got a great friend in Spydie!

    Looks like it was a pretty ride.

  2. Yep, a great friend and a great ride.

  3. How can you not love a ride like that? And who the hell doesn’t know that Old Hickory was Andrew Jackson?!

  4. Yea, Andrew Jackson got pretty scared by the Bell Witch. I forget the war exactly he mentioned be he said he would rather fight that war again that go back where the Bell Witch was.
